This problem started around version 97 (i had a break from computer and went back at v 97) but older versions still had that problem after i revert to it. i did:

  • turned hardware acceleration and recommended settings off
  • cleared cache and profile few times
  • offline and safe mode
  • restarting and reinstalling for few times
  • installing Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017, 2019, and 2022 (vc_redist.x64.exe).

still hangs up.

it sometimes opens after i restarted,what can cause this?

Until the most recent update of Firefox, I was able to access atrribute data of a GIS map feature on the GIS Open Data, State of Michigan website:

Now, I can not click on any feature. I can do this, however, using Chrome. What is the issue, here?

Hello, this did not happen in past. Tonight Gmail again says "not connected" with a countdown. When looking at the Network tool I can see that each POST request ends with NS_BINDING_ABORTED error code. It seems that those requests are aborted before a single packet is sent over network. Is there any permanent solution? Last time I got around the problem by restarting the browser. But I am not happy to do that over and over again because the Firefox is bugged.

Hello

Is there a way to find previously viewed images somewhere? I was watching an image in the Firefox browser a few days ago and now that I went back to check it again the page had been removed by the user. I assume all images that I´ve viewed has been stored somewhere on my computer? Where can I see these?

The same question goes for webpages. The image was on a webpage that I would like to view again but it was removed along with the image. Can I see whole pages that I´ve previously browsed somewhere?

I know this has been posssible in the past but it was like 10 years ago I last checked.

Thanks!

This annoying notification on the bottom right keeps popping up everytime I take a screenshot. I've been using computers for the past 17 years, I know how to paste things by now. Even worse, it overlays on other applications and pesters me there for about 10 seconds until I close it. Can this notification be hidden in about config or do I have to find a community add on that does the same thing, but without this stupid notification?

- You updated and took my bookmarks away (something I needed and used all the time. How can you do that? Really? - also every time I go on line I get another stupid sign at the top right telling me to update again. I'm being pestered to do something that screwed me over. - I’ve tried the (old firefox date folder, thing) and it didn’t work. (so please don't suggest that) - I have to go looking for what bookmarks I have left (no more drop-down menu with all of them right there where over the years I've organized them)

I used to like this program, a lot. If I can’t get my Book marks back I’m done with FireFox. What the hell were you thinking?

This worked before ver 100 and suddenly has stopped working with ver 100.

I even rebooted the computer (Win 10, 64-bit) and same behavior continues.

Firefox asked me if I wanted to clean up my firefox and I said yes and I lost all my user names and passwords. Furthermore, now, of several that I do remember, when I enter those websites and type in the user name and password it prompts me to ask if I want to save them, I say yes, but it does not save them. Is there any way to get these back? Why aren't the passwords I enter going forward saving? I'm furious about this as I have no other record of these. I do not have any kind of password software either. I've used Firefox for 10+ years but ready to jump to a different browser. This is maddening

I have updated my browser on my windows computer, my network speed, upload and download speed is good. All other websites are functioning just fine. Only Gmail seems to be affected on my computer. (It works fine from other computers and from my phone.)

Do you know how I can make it work again? Please help!?!

The message about the "Browser being managed by your organization" that shows up in Firefox settings, is new. I've been using Linux mint with Firefox for over a year on my own personal laptop and this message just showed up in my Firefox settings kind of out of the blue.. Can it be related to version 100? I was just trying to do something online. totally unrelated to the Firefox settings, and now I've spent a considerable amount of time trying to get rid of this policy. I tried to set the AppUpdate policy to true, but it still will not allow me to check for updates in the settings, or if I go under help, about. I do not use the laptop often, so this is the first time I've been unable to check for updates, and I would prefer not to have an enterprise security policy running on my personal laptop. I do not know how it came to be on the laptop but any help removing, or resetting the controls would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, As it is, Firefox remember the primary password as long as the software is open and the computer not shut down. This is a very serious security risk! Firefox should forget the primary password after a certain period of time, even when running continuously. At least Firefox should forget the password after the session is suspended or locked. Could you please add this feature in your next release. Sincerely, -- Pierre

At random, whenever use a search box on a page, Firefox will lock up. The "loading" icon on the tab will animate as normal, but the entire window won't respond. If I press the show desktop button and then try to reveal Firefox, none of the windows will appear. I'd have to go into Windows Task Manager and be lucky enough to terminate the correct process containing the tab, or else I'd have to start all over again.

no ryme or reason that i have found. not a continuous issue, works normal 3 hours, next minute boom takes off immediately to bottom, if i reverse direction action will stop, then i drag bar back upward where it took off. I have replaced batteries in mouse thinking low voltage, not this issue, on-screen cursor will stop/n start or to me acts like too many other background apps running using all bandwidth or ram = low batt voltage =replace batt problem solved. scrolling issue does seem to happen more often in overnight hours, hard to say definitively, MS is no help, after reading 9 pg. of community scrolling issues mine is diff. no issues of randomly, this has been happening for awhile 2yrs maybe more. its the random part that confuses me, i gone threw all mouse settings on/off n firefox, windows, HP, no fix, no error, very odd, i have changed wireless mouses, i dont think i've tried a corded one, after this i will, just gotta find it. HP laptop; Gear Head MPT3200RED mouse;HDMI cord to 42" Sanyo LED TV; ANKER USB w/4 xtra slots; I never touch laptop lid is closed all time, multiple screen switch on. Its very annoying only one indention roll of wheel, one line selected in win settings, mouse receiver plugged into laptop which is approximately 6 ft. away max. there will be days works perfectly normal, n then this evening started again, probly been week maybe, i'm gonna start keeping track of every factor i can think off date, time, website, tabs active, extension s on/active eg. just now tubi going threw my list which is very long page, 6 dvd picture lines down boom takes off just caught it around line 20 outta 150 lines maybe, heres thot, internet access threw verizon hotspot using tether hi speed cable connected to Galaxy S9, if web page not fully loaded thats when action starts, once it starts doesnt matter then random part kicks in, i can restart cpu, or disconnect S9 for minute , sometimes that helps, but not always. oh. i also use onscreen keyboard to type...suks...this Q has taken over hour to type as i click one letter at a time to spell words, my hand n index finger cramping. any thots you can think of wud be most appreciated , i'll do my best at documenting incidents , thnx vic

I have W10 fully updated with plenty of RAM but in the last few weeks, after I boot up in the morning (I shut down every night) it takes a long time (several minutes) for either Firefox or Thunderbird to fully boot up . Firefox opens tomy home page, but does not complete for several minutes so I can go nowhere. If I am patient and wait it is fine the rest of the day..nice and fast. If I shut down and reboot again- very very slow opening of both for the initial time. I have run full virus scans, sfc/scannow, malwarebytes, cleared history and cache and cookies, turned off and on hardware excelerator. Any other suggestions? Word and Excel open quickly as usual.

How do I create a TLS 1.0, 1.1 exception in Firefox 100.0+ for my legacy devices (NAS), that no longer get firmware updates from the manufacture, that are on my private network and thier configuration is done through a web browser?

 I have been using Firefox browser for a long time, since it was called Mozilla browser.  An answer such as "I'm out of luck." means I will have to look for a new browser.  I prefer not to do that.  I trust the Mozilla brand and like you products and recommend them to my friends and customers.
